copper fresh water piping
can you bury copper pipe? if so what type and can you bury it as is or do you have to wrap it?

Pretty broad question so I'll give some broad answers :)
Type L & K outside
Type K inside
Pipe must be sleeved through concrete. Interior joints must be brazed.
Other area's plumbing code may differ

Make sure it's below the frost line or it's going to burst.
